INDIANNA JONES

20160214_085327

Not too long ago I went to Zara, well I should say I went on a frenzy at Zara and picked up this little suede dress.
Among other items, i fell in lust, I had to have it.

I couldn’t wait to wear it, there have been so many occasions where I was tempted to but I thought I should save it for the right occasion.

One sunday morning, mum and I decided to grab breakfast out. This was the time.

It was only a double win that I had just got my hair done which we all know that your hairstyle is the finishing touch of every outfit.
I decided to go with the Indianna Jone vibes I was getting with this dress and team it with my tan brogues which kept it simple but fun!

This dress has come in handy in so many ways, when I’m struggling to find an outfit for work, this is a quick go to and I can’t wait to style it for winter.

There’s nothing better than a dual purpose dress.

Thanks Zara! You’ve done it again.

FAUX

12

Lately, I have been having trouble on styling my bob since I haven’t had short hair in a very long time. Especially when it comes to the night life. I always think what can I wear to show off this hair and look somewhat of an adult since my hair makes me look like I’m 12 again when I am not all spiffed up. Then I had the perfect statement piece to make it look like I was wearing the perfect wig. My pink faux fur coat from H&M!

I had purchased this coat from our local H&M a couple of years ago and is still one of my favorite pieces to date. I have only worn this coat about 4 times since that purchase so, you can say it’s a pretty big statement piece.

I was meeting friends for drinks so wanted to keep it casual but, still very glamorous at the same time. I paired it with my favorite pair of Levi high waisted jeans and vintage, ivory crop top. I finished off the look with pink and metallic silver heeled sandals. My hair has been getting me into some really cool, French, chic, glamorous looks and I absolutely love it. It’s always nice to change up your look and get into different styles every now and then. Change is good but remember to always keep a little bit of yourself in it.

MEMORY LANE

We have teamed up with Social Print Studio who are running a competition on showcasing a stylish look book.
We are constantly looking back at our looks to see how we styled our outfits and how much has changed or hasn’t, we also ask ourselves the question, would we wear this again?

For this collaboration we are pulling together some of our all time favourite looks that best represent our style and personalities.

From our go-to outfits and the ones that made us step out of our comfort zone, see what we have to say about our past looks below.

aff

This is one of our favourite looks, one reason because we are both in it and because it was Adelaide Fashion Festival so we wanted our looks to be ‘sleek’. Two of the best accents of these looks is white pants & black strappy heels, you can never go wrong, they are the strong staples of any good outfit and can be worn in anyway, both casually and dressed up, teamed with Alexis’ Chanel inspired skirt which lead as a feature and Georgia’s Red shirt and blazer which transformed the outfit to a dressy suit.  We love any look that can be worn in multiple styles!

From french vibes to edgy – this is why we love fashion, keeping the same bold lip but transforming its’ style from two completely different looks, sums up our blog in a nutshell.  Fashion gives us the freedom to choose who we want to be and that can change depending on how we feel and who we are inspired by. edgy jacket

From a feature jacket to skirt, these are two things every girl needs in their wardrobe! When you are not sure what to wear a feature piece of clothing is an instant outfit, teamed with a simple top or pants, it can take your outfit from something basic to something standout!

And then there’s the ‘something you would never buy dress’, it’s always fun experimenting with fashion and trying something you normally wouldn’t like this girly southern dress because it may just suprise you and like the saying goes, you never know until you try!

And of course the classic red dress, need we say more, it doesn’t require much more effort, it speaks for itself and it speaks loudly and can be worn on almost any occasion, from work events to weddings, a fun red dress is a must have staple, like the little black dress, a little red dress in whatever style you desire looks great on everyone!

We hope you’ve enjoyed our walk down fashion lane, to see all our previous looks, go to our look-book page and to see what more Social Print Studio have to offer, head to their site to turn your favourite snaps in to long lasting memories with their great photo books

I went to see Ghost on Thursday Night and the weather had cooled down which is odd but not surprising for an Adelaide summer, however I wasn’t too upset because I love winter fashion.  As soon as the weather starts cooling, my inspiration levels and window-browsing expeditions increase so it’s no surprise I took this opportunity to delve into my winter closet a bit.

I kept it pretty simple and classic with my black pants, boots, hat and a staple white shirt which made my jacket the feature piece of my outfit, yes it’s new too, and yes it’s from Zara (which apparently according to Vogue’s article is meant to be pronounced Dzha-Da) but it was on sale so that justifies it right?

It was a perfect Thursday night adding a bit of excitement into my weekly routine.

FRENCH BOB

Lately, I have been experimenting with new looks to go well with my new haircut. And, I have been feeling the French style with how effortless and chic it looks – especially with short hair. I thought what a perfect time to let out my inner French girl and I had the perfect outfit in mind.

I had purchased an ivory Victorian inspired long sleeve dress from ASOS a while back and had no idea where to wear it to until I got this haircut! I paired it my Victorian inspired dress with a pair of ivory pumps, a feathered coat and topped it off with Chanel red lipstick. Feeling so French I knew the purse I could only accessorize my outfit with was my classic Chanel. It was the most chic I have ever felt. Man, what a haircut and good outfit can do! That day I happened to also have to take care of some very special business downtown which played a perfect setting with my look.

I had never felt so great and confident in such a long time it made the day so much better. You should always have a look that makes you feel amazing that is key. To me it is never about impressing anyone else but yourself and if you have achieved that then by damn show off that confidence! And on that note here’s to confidence and my future adventures as a self made French citizen.

SOUTHERN GAL

This dress made me feel like I was someone else for the day.  That’s the beauty of fashion, it can change the way you feel about yourself, it’s like wearing a masquerade and it’s up to you, who you wish to be.

I bought this dress the other weekend and instantly fell in love with it, I couldn’t wait to wear and in fact I didn’t wait, I wore it that very night to a shadier side of town and felt like I was Alice just dropped into Wonderland – out of place, but it made me  happy, wearing it.  I don’t normally go for this style, but I have been loving Southern fashion recently and this was a perfect find.  I teamed it with some black ankle boots and a classic red lip.

It got me thinking, that although this may not be my normal style, it doesn’t mean I can’t wear it.  We tend to get stuck in what we should be wearing due to social norms that we often don’t leave our comfort box to try something new, but sometimes it’s what we don’t think suits us that can make us feel more like ourselves.

So shop for you!
